Development is knocking on the doors of The Strip and German father-son duo Hertz Klinemann and Franz want to tear down the Bourbon Room. Regina, the city planner, opposes this and starts protests to stop them. She also learns that Franz has nothing to do with it but instead wants to open a confectionery shop in Germany.
Meanwhile, Drew auditions for the band Arsenal and goes on a date with Sherrie but is unable to express his love for her. Enter Stacee, the arrogant lead of the band Arsenal who decides to lure Sherrie away and ultimately leaves her.
After a series of twists and turns, Drew ends up a pizza delivery boy, Sherrie an exotic dancer and Bourbon Room is still in danger. Watch Rock of Ages the Musical to find out what happens to everyone and if the Bourbon Room gets saved!
